    "The Dawning of the Day" by Mary Fahl

    This morning early I walked on
    while my darling was in a dream
    The last sweet days of summer bloomed
    and dressed the trees in green
    Then soaring high in the gleaming sky
    from far across the bay
    came a fearsome roar from a distant shore
    at the dawning of the day

    Then I called my men to follow me
    knowing well that the view was dim
    Though tired and worn, how they fought all morn'
    as time was closing in
    And my heart was sad though sore with pride
    for brave lads all were they
    As the angels fly, how they climbed so high
    on the dawning of the day

    But the edge is moving nearer now
    inside the fading sun
    and calling, calling out to them
    my brothers, one by one
    But only dust silence sounds
    The ashes float away
    as the twilight ends and the night descends
    'til the dawning of the day

    Forgive me love, I'm going now
    so very far away
    When darkness falls, only think me near
    and do not be afraid
    And please don't grieve when I am gone
    Abide in what remains
    'til the shadows end and we meet again
    on the dawning of the day

    For when shadows end,
    we shall meet again
    on the dawning of the day

    Brothers...

    You will not grow old as those of us who are left grow old, age will not weary you, nor the years condemn...at the going down of the sun, we will remember you.

    He that shall live this day, and see old age,
    Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
    And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian:'
    Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.
    And say 'These wounds I had on Crispin's day.'
    Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
    But he'll remember with advantages
    What feats he did that day: then shall our names.
    Familiar in his mouth as household words
    Harry the king, Bedford and Exeter,
    Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
    Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd.
    This story shall the good man teach his son;
    And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
    From this day to the ending of the world,
    But we in it shall be remember'd;
    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
    For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
    Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
    This day shall gentle his condition:
    And gentlemen in England now a-bed
    Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
    And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
    That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
